TONIGHT! Thursday, July 30, 2020, 6 p.m. EST, tune into Harlem’s own chef Marcus Samuelsson of Red Rooster Harlem and chef Lexis Gonzalez making it a southern-inspired pasta night with Barilla’s Pasta Builders Kit. Register to watch at

Chef Samuelsson is incorporating summer succotash into his dish while chef Lexis includes collard greens and ham in hers. Both dishes will be packed with flavor, and these chefs packed with spirit.

Some of the viewers joining the cook-along received a Barilla Pasta Builders Kit for donating $20 or more during the Harlem Serves Up! televised fundraiser on July 18. Many others will be joining just for inspiration and a fun moment with a pantry staple.

This event continues the work Barilla and these chefs have done in support of Harlem Serves Up!, benefiting Harlem organizations helping to fortify small businesses and fighting food insecurity. Please continue to donate at
